No Twonky service after update to 8.4?

Postby BugFixX » Wed Feb 08, 2017 10:44 pm

Hi,

I've updated my Twonky server from 8.3 to 8.4. The first bad thing is that I have to create a Lynx account! WTF? Why?
After that I figured out, that there is no Windows service anymore. Therefore I have to login to the Winodws server to start Twonky! WTF? Why?
I tried to add Twonky as a service via nssm.exe but it doesn't work. It seems that the service doesn't connect to Lynx to login and verify the license.
I tried all three exe files (twonkyserver.exe, twonkystarter.exe and twonkytray.exe).
How can I configure Twonky to start automatically without to login to Windows?
I use Windows Server Essentials 2012R2.

Best,
Andreas

This is the official answer from Twonky support:

"Hi,

we are sorry, but we can no longer support the service version on the Windows Server

Twonky can now only be run on login in the autostart.

Supported OS is Win7 and Win10.

Sorry
The Twonky Team"

And this is my official answer:

A server application that doesn't support server operation systems is not a server application. And no service mode anymore? Are you kidding?

Bye bye Twonky!
Will use Minim Server in the future.
